view of the city

Can you please tell me where to go to have a nice view on all the city? (top of some building that I can easily go to) :)
Thanks!

Don't know if it is easy, but there are splendid views of the city from the Martinitoren. See websites (and most probably on the Groningen page of VT):

happy travels

A typical Dutch street thing is the carillon music that you can hear in many towns large and small. If you like this, give me dates so that I can tell you when the carillon is played (by a musician of course, not just automatic) at the Martinitoren.
You can hear it on market days Tuesdays and Saturdays around midday.
It would be interesting to climb the tower while the carillon is being played. If you like... it's a mighty thing to see those bells.

If I'm correct the largest bell there is the Salvator (7850 kilo).

Here's some Bob Dylan songs on the carillon of the Martinitoren:
